Pablo Picasso

This week’s activity combines Pablo Picasso’s birthday (October 25th), Halloween, and an English Common Core activity all in one lesson!  There is a lot of information about Pablo Picasso on the internet, and we highly recommend previewing any sites your students will use.  Some of Picasso’s work may not be appropriate for elementary aged children.

The first activity is for sixth graders.  They will read a short passage about Pablo Picasso and then answer some questions using what they have learned.  This quick lesson reinforces ELA CCSS RI.6.2, RI.6.6 and W.6.5. Click on the image below to download.

The next activity is an art project that encourages students to use Picasso’s art to inspire them to create a Halloween monster.  This lesson is created as ELA CCSS grades 1, 2, and 3, but the activity can be used for all levels of art students. Click on the image below to download.
